In a turnabout that took a couple-a-hundred years, our America has returned to its roots...to age enough to become the King George it once fought against. Our tax code provides that there are many who pay no effective tax...nay...they receive from the coffers because it is what's "fair" by the posse.
Dear Leader wants us to believe we must choose between cutting support from sick children or the needy children. Hogwash. @TheDemocrats believe there is a governmental burro and you can keep putting new programs and debts and requirements onto that ass...but although great, there is a weight limit and they seemed determined to find it. Maybe its recklessness. Maybe its an utter lack of understanding on how budgets and money work. Maybe its an innate, anarchic, nihilistic desire to bring down what they feel is the "old style" American government to build up a new one in their own image.

Whatever the case, the Founders were concerned about this from the very start. Their letters to each other, the Federalist Papers, the Constitution itself and the Bill of Rights are all evidence of this. Militias? Yeah those were so states could take down a tyrannical central government if need be.
What is left after this tyrannical democracy is a minority who is always outvoted and outflanked. Where we were sensitive to minorities in the past we now turn a blind eye. Those hardworking souls who provide 30-50% of their work to the government and get nothing in return grow fewer as industries fail and government costs grow. Where is their representation?
California offers a fine example of this tyrannical democracy...enacting a retroactive (for 3 years) tax on businesses. It's simple theft by taking.
When will it stop? When the checks and cheese stop flowing and America is out of order.
